Peru Pasamayo: Many killed as coach plunges off cliff

Peru Pasamayo: Many killed as coach plunges off cliff”

In this photo provided by the government news agency Andina, firemen recover bodies from a bus that fell off a cliff after it was hit by a tractor-trailer rig in Pasamayo, Peru, on Tuesday.

At least 25 people have been killed in Peru when a bus collided with a trailer and plunged into a ravine, local media reported.

Col. Dino Escudero, a Peruvian police official, said at least 25 people are dead.

He said he feared the death toll could continue to rise.

The Pacific Ocean road is considered one of the most unsafe in Peru.

The crash reportedly happened in Pasamayo, which borders the Pacific Ocean and is north of the capital city, Lima.

No road leads directly to the beach, complicating rescue efforts, Espinoza said, though police and firefighters managed to transport six survivors with serious injuries to nearby hospitals by helicopter.

At least 36 people have been killed after a bus plunged off a 330ft cliff at a corner known as "Devil's Curve".

The serpentine road where the accident happened has no safety fences and is often laced with heavy fog coming off the nearby ocean, according to dangerousroads.org, which lists the roadway as "extremely risky".

The highway is known as the "Devil's Curve" because it is narrow, frequently shrouded in mist and curves along a cliff that has seen numerous accidents. That accident occurred during conditions of heavy rain and poor visibility.
